Jagadish Prasad (Krishna) - the editor of a popular newspaper
- recruits Taarak (NT Rathnaa), who is an engineering gold
medallist with a driving ambition to become journalist. Taarak
becomes an under cover reporter and joins a degree college
to study the youth and write articles to inspire them in positive
way. Taarak under the guise of the name Ram starts observing
how youth are getting depressed and writes weekly articles
on newspaper of Jagadish Prasad to encourage youth. JP (Jayaprakash
Redy) - the editor of rival newspaper - is in search of Taarak
to recruit him to increase his circulation. The rest of the
story is about why Taarak decided to become a journalist and
how he cured the thinking process of the youth.
NT Rathnaa put on some weight in this film. He looks relatively
better compared to his earlier films. He performed reasonably
well. Heroine Shirmili is little over weight and she does
not look glamorous. She did well with in her limitation. Krishna
did an inspiring role of an editor. Chitram Seenu did well
in a comedy role.
Story: The basic storyline is inspired by Drew Barrymore's
flick 'Never Been Kissed'. The background of the story is
changed from love angle to a social. The climax in which heroine
tells the time and wait for the hero in a football court is
also a straight lift from 'Never Been Kissed'. Vjaya Creations
unit takes credit for this story.
Screenplay - Direction: Balasekharan did a decent job
as a director for this film. The narration of the flashback
scene where hero's sister suicides in a jiff of frustration
is very authentic.
Mani Sharma did a very good job of providing some thumping
music for this film. All the tunes sound very familiar to
us. The best mass song of this film is 'Sarasamika Sunday'.
Paruchuri brothers did a decent job as dialogue writers. But
they could not refrain from giving unnecessary references
to 'anna garu' and 'vamsam'.
The basic point of youth taking quick decisions to go for
suicide is a powerful point. The director tried to create
an impact of that using the flashback. But the narrative meanders
from the basic objective towards the love track between hero
and heroine. Over all it's an average flick.
